It is Pfingstfest today. We had to turn our clocks back one hour for Tunisia, Africa. We docked in La Goulette. Had breakfast and got ready for our first land tour - Carthage and Sidi Bou Said. We met with Sue at breakfast. She was coming on our tour as Charlotte needed the day to prepare for her performance tonight. At 11am we had early lunch before our excursion. We turned on our wifi to Google Tunisia and a Skype call came in from ...
... 2- About pirates: we didn't encounter any. The razor wire was removed when we were in Sharm El Sheikh and the security patrol left at the entrance to the Suez Canal. I forgot to mention that we were in blackout conditions while in the pirate zone, with all exterior lights turned off and all curtains closed. Even the small windows in the doors to the outside deck were covered over. The happy result of this was the star-gazing was fantastic! ...
... special "All Rounders" lunch, an elaborate meal put on just for those who have been on the cruise for its entire duration. The meal was wonderful including rock lobster and Norwegian salmon for the main course. Our tablemate was the head of housekeeping, a Filipina lady with a B.Sc. in civil engineering who has spent the past twenty years working her way up the ladder with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. It was fascinating to hear her behind-the-scenes stories of life on board the Black ...
Not the right vibe to go off touring we decided. Another bombing yesterday by Bouta Haram (or whatever they call themselves). Oh how difficult to hang out by the pool again with nachos, tacos, chicken and the cocktails! Took the photos off the ...
The one thing I don't think travelers ever get used to is the long days of travelling. This is particularly true of flying, especially as living in Cornwall, airports are so far away. I have almost exhausted all the destinations which leave from Exeter Airport. Today's flight is from Bristol.
We arrived at the airport at around 2am, another disadvantage of air travel is the times of the flight. Also the ...
Historical Traveler Reviews Medi Golf Hotel Hammamet
First time I've been on an all inclusive holiday and first time I've been to Tunisia. I was a bit apprehensive about the Medi Golf after reading the poor reviews on Trip Advisor but on arriving at the hotel I was pleasantly surprised. Friendly reception staff and a large, clean room overlooking the pool.
I have chosen to write a review for this hotel as there was limited information available about it when I booked my holiday but took the risk due to the excellent price (£500 each all inclusive at the end of august-2weeks). After we had booked the holiday new reviews were posted which were negative making us apprehensive about the holiday. Going in to the hotel with such bad reviews we expected the worse and so were pleasantly surprised.
I can honestly say that this hotel is not a 4 star.
Je reviens de l'hôtel Medi Golf où nous avons séjourné ac mon ami pendant une semaine. Et je peux vous dire que malgré tous les messages négatifs sur cet hôtel, nous avons bcp apprécié nos vacances ! Il n'y aurait presque rien à redire sur l'hôtel, ce qui laissait le plus à désirer était l'organisation des transferts entre l'hôtel et l'aéroport.
We cannot agree more with the people who wrote the most recent review, saying how awful it was. We appear to have been there at the same time, but did not meet, probably as they spent so much time out of the hotel. We too found the majority of staff rude and unhelpful; rooms were very basic and not what you expect for 4 star. On the particular subject, we were advised by the holiday rep that the hotel is "local 4 star only." Booking in the UK, though, means you pay international 4 star money and not local!
you got to be kidding this has got to be the worst hotel in tunisia
Worth a visit
Stayed at this hotel recently, we had a lovely time were made to feel very welcome and the staff were really friendly.
The Hotel and pool were really clean and the room was large and spacious, the hotel was very quite as it was the start of the season so some of the all inclusive facilities were not available ie late night snacks although one of the waiters did make me a pizza late one night.
This is a largely french hotel but most of the staff could speak a little english and seemed happy to have some english people staying there for a change.
My one complaint was the food could have been warmer. The confectionary was to die for.
